COAP Programs and Applications

The Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession (COAP) helps you explore what you can do in the accounting field. If you think accounting is just tax, think again. Plot your future as a Chief Financial Officer, forensics investigator, data analyst, software developer, entertainment and sports agent, auditor or entrepreneur. 
When you apply, please note the location of the program for which you are applying. Note that program planners may arrange for transportation to their colleges or universities, but please plan for alternative transportation as backup. Be aware of the deadline and note the need for a high school guidance counselor and parental approval.

The program provides real insight into how CPAs influence the business world. The program is an important component of the New York State Society of CPAs' (NYSSCPA) efforts to recruit an increased number of students into the accounting profession, with a particular focus on those from underrepresented groups. The Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession (COAP) program is open to all, regardless of race, color, national origin or sex.
